Thursday Doors: Raddon-du-Chapendu

A number of trips my s-i-l and I took while I was in France started out over the same roads and we turned at this spot several times before I asked my s-i-l to stop so I could take a couple of door shots.  Raddon-du-Chapendu is in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, but the only articles I can find about it are in either French or English, so I’m not including a link.  Sorry about that.  I love these very old buildings, doors, and doors within doors!

You can visit Norm’s blog to see the beautiful doors he features this week.  You’ll also find a blue link critter that will take you to the other door posts for the week.

    Love the “first floor” door. I guess it makes sense if there’s a hay wagon or something outside when it’s open. 🙂

    Interesting doors!!

    Welcome back – you were missed 🙂
    Nice finds. With the hay on the ground in front of them, I’m guessing these are from an active farm of some sorts?

    • Thanks, Norm. Just found you in my spam folder, but you’re now free to move about the comment section. 🙂 I believe you’re right about it being an active farm, although we didn’t see anyone about. A great many buildings are in use, even those that don’t appear to be in good enough shape to use.


  4. Is that a little heart-shaped hole in the last door, Janet?

  5. Great doors, and the heart is a bonus. 🙂

  6. The arched doorway… and the little heart… what attention to detail!

    • I really like that. So often now, everything is cookie cutter and nothing special. Of course, special tends to cost a lot these days, so I understand, but it makes me appreciate the details all the more. The arch is typical of this area.


  7. I love the little heart cut out, and the pop of pink flowers out front.

  8. Door-in-a-door is always a winner.

    Beautiful colors — lovely choices today, Janet.

  10. Dan Antion says:

    A door within a door (I think) and doors above doors…all pretty interesting, Janet.

  11. Joanne Sisco says:

    The little heart punch-out is a winner 🙂

    Welcome back in the USA! Your absence has been noted (in a good way) I realized that every time I we were in France, it was in the city, so I don’t know much of the rural landscape. My b-i-l once was panning to build his house there on the country side, but I don’t think it eve came to pass.

    • Thanks for the welcome back, Jesh. Most of my time in France has been spent in the country or in very small towns. I pass lots of doors, but usually on the road where we can’t stop. 😦 But it’s so much fun and I had a blast.


      • jesh stg says:

        Does this mean your French is at a conversational level? (I wished now I had payed more attention in school, but I choose English to be my favorite foreign language instead.)

      • Ha, my French is barely existent. Since I go so often, I really need to learn more, so this next year I’m going to work on it at least a bit. I studied German back in high school. That was a long time ago, but I have a bit more German than French.

    Nice shades of grey, especially with that hint of purple.

  14. Such a sweet little peep hole in this one! I guess that gives new meaning to the phrase “home is where the heart is.”

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
